Our Count Your Blessings Mystery Quilt-Along for 2021 will begin soon and I just can’t wait!
Our mystery quilt is made up of 16 applique blocks with positive and uplifting quotes/scriptures that are embroidered onto each block. Annie and I each designed 8 blocks and 1 border, so you can choose how to assemble your quilt in the end.
Every week, starting May 6th and ending September 16, we will host a zoom meeting to reveal a new block, give tips on how to construct it, plus instruction on a new technique, so if you are new to applique, embroidery, etc., we will teach you how to do it!! We’ve included 2 weeks off in the schedule to allow vacation or catch-up time.
The block PDFs will arrive weekly in your inbox ready to print on your home printer and will also be available as a download on our Private Facebook Group.
